Can you guys advise me with finding more channels to watch? I have a 90cm GeoSatpro reflector and live 70 miles north of NYC.

Currently, I can get all 100 FTA and Radio channels off of Galaxy 19, Infowars on Galaxy 16 and I get 6 channels off 12144 on 103W. Strangely, I can't seem to get the radio stations. The Musek ones I mean.

According to Dishpointer app I can see Sats from 58.1W to 110W. Do you guys know any transponders on other sats that would most likely give me something more to watch? Should I be able to see The Florida Channel off 87W? TVROSAT says I need a 120cm dish but then it says the same for Galaxy 19 and I have only 90cm dish. I'm also curious to see some of the news feeds. Do I really need a bigger dish for that too?

Thanks in advance for help, tips and suggestions!

John

On 91 west you can find quite a few wild feeds in the evenings. 103 west has cgtn, dw, nhk and cozi. 111 west may have some fta channels like tsn if you also have a dsr6000. Your dish is just too small. The best stuff is on c-band. You need a 10 foot or bigger to dish watch a lot more.

What is a wild feed? I do trust it isn't something naughty. I was hoping to picj up DW on 103 but that responder just would not come in for me :(
